A worthy lesson: Flipped illustrates why looking beneath the surface of others is and always will be important 🤗
Awwwww. All the middle school feels.
So relieved we will have at least one sane house in Congress, and hope to see some oversight. So disappointed that the wave didn't carry over to the senate, and too many states elected Repub governors. Don't understand why people keep voting agaimst their own best interests, and how so many support an evil, corrupt, racist, criminal liar. Sorry to be so emotional. Will try to (mostly) avoid politics here from now on.
This was on the 2005 sunshine state young reader‘s list and is a realistic fiction story, that would be great for shared reading. The book is split up into two main characters that tells the story from both points of view. A young girl is obsessed with the boy across the street, although he isn‘t interested. Their family dynamics are drastically different, and once the girl believes that the boy isn‘t all that he finally starts to take an interest
This realistic book teaches so many life lessons! Let's not forget the romance. Flipped was definitely a favorite growing up. Julie was exactly the type of girl I wanted to be, passionate and unwavering. In the end it was the love Julie had for herself, that made bryce flip the script.
I went to a Montessori school, funds were always short. Every time the library would get a set of brand new books kids would flock to get them. The boys abandoned the book after reading the description. The girls on the other hand went bat sh*t over it. But I was set on not reading a love story. Fast forward to 9th grade. I'm out with an old friend. She gives me the book tells me "You're not someone who believes in easy love, read it."
I am not much of a romantic and I rarely read love stories, but this one is quite special! It's the sweet pure first love between two little children. She loved him, he thought she was weird and then just like that he ... Flipped! ❤
PS: There is a movie as well and it's truly charming with adorable actors! If you can watch it, just do; it's a sweet bonus! 😉
Flipped is not just purely fluff, it's deeper than what I've expected because it conveys great messages that serve as an inspiration to the readers. Full review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1171028296?book_show_action=false
